The chapter on fractions helps us understand that the partial section of the whole number also exists, and the whole number can also be represented in the form of numerator and denominator. We will also learn to depict fractions with the help of a diagram.
The chapter teaches us about the different types of fractions and how to write them in words. It contains different exercises which will teach us different concepts of fractions used in arithmetic problems. For example, we will learn how to calculate fractions of a dozen, an hour, a minute etc. This chapter also helps us understand many more concepts related to the representation of numbers. Chapter 5 Fractions also contains questions and concepts which teach us the ratios and numbers between two integers like 2 and 3. All the concepts used in this chapter help us in a better understanding of fractions.
The application-based questions present in Class 6 Maths Chapter 5 Fractions exercises help build a better understanding of the concepts and solve various similar problems in the future. The prime goal of the chapter is to help the students get their basics clear for exercises. The exercises contain questions based on arithmetical operations where concepts of numerator and denominators are used and questions where they need to use their problem-solving skills to get the answers, like finding the greater fraction between two given entities.
The concept of improper fractions is discussed in one of the exercises. Here we will learn what an improper fraction is, how to identify improper fractions, how we can express improper fractions in mixed fractions etc. The knowledge of factors and multiples will be used to convert the fractions into their simplest forms and compare the fractions by converting their denominators. To have a common denominator, the students will use the knowledge of LCM. The chapter also teaches us about like and unlike fractions.
